The Cinquecento in Florence : 'Modern Manner' and Counter-Reformation
This beautiful book accompanies an exhibition at the Palazzo Strozzi exploring the art of the second half of the 16th century in Florence.
The show and this accompanying book explore the development of Florentine art in the second half of the century through the painting, sculpture, and draughtsmanship of such artists as Andrea del Sarto, Bronzino, Pontormo, Giorgio Vasari, Giambologna and Bartolomeo Ammannati. The book provides an opportunity to celebrate the cultural and intellectual era that was marked by the Council of Trent and its Counter-Reformation, and by the figure of Francesco I de Medici, one of the most outstanding figures in the history of court patronage of the arts in Europe.
